‘Dear boys on road, / dear girls on bus / top decks, / dear hip-hop, / dear love letters / pressed deep into vinyl platters, dear Americas, / Jamaica and East End -’ Jacob Sam-La Rose, ‘Talk This Way’
This month, we’ll explore the letter as a way into new poems, playing with the private space a letter can create between two voices, and the leaps a letter can make from mundane to profound. We’ll write to and from places, characters and objects, exploring requests, questions, longings and secrets, and crafting our letters into poems.
Those who wish will receive some playful, handwritten post.
Runs from 19 April 2021 – 11 May 2021
